Help with 7 hours in Miami

Joanie | Mar 19, 2013 05:08 AM

I purposely booked a long layover on my way to Peru so I could spend some time in Miami. Arriving Sun. about 1PM and will be back at the airport at 9PM or so. I thought there was a proper Deco Museum (at 1001 Ocean Dr) but now I'm not sure, is it only a walk around the buildings? I can do that myself. But I do want to see those buildings and will need a nice lunch before I look around. Any place jump to mind for something tasty but not unhealthy in the $15-20 range? Then I'll need an easy to carry snack for the plane ride. The first thing that comes to mind is a Cubano but anything that's not messy.

May or may not care about a cocktail but read about the Broken Shaker which looked interesting. And a friend suggested Tobacco Road and Mac's Club Deuce. And got a rec for lunch at the Tap Tap Haitian Restaurant but I'm looking to go a bit more upscale I think.

Also wondering if it's easy to see another part of town without spending too much money on cabs. Is there a shuttle from the airport that doesn't take too long? Where would you go with limited time? Should I go to the Bass Museum? Little Havana of course comes to mind. I'm from Boston and walk a lot so that's not an issue but going from one interesting area to another is probably a lot further than it is here. Want to see some sights but not spend tons on cabs to do it. Thanks in advance.
